LOOK: The Partisan Racial Divide in the 2012 Vote

The Washington Post's The Fix summarizes the Republican Party's current and future problems in winning elections at the national level by demonstrating the partisan racial divide in the 2012 exit polls of the presidential vote.
That only 11 percent of Republicans’ total vote came from non-whites tells you everything you need to know about the large-scale demographic challenges that Republicans must confront. (The fact that 44 percent of all Democratic votes came from non-whites paints the Republican challenge in even starker terms.) That the white vote as a total of the overall votes has declined in every election since 1992 and dropped to just 72 percent in 2012 just adds to Republicans’ problems.
